Additional Housing Options

Emory University seeks to ensure students in all residential facilities a safe, comfortable and dignified living experience.

Medically Related Needs
Emory University is committed to making university housing accessible to all students. To that end, we have accessible rooms for students with disabilities.  These rooms are distributed throughout the campus and may change from year to year. In addition, the University has wheelchair accessible shuttles to service the campus.  Please note: Housing does not provide accommodations for Learning Disabilities. If you have a disability that may require special assignment or accommodations, you must contact and register with the Office of Accessibility Services (OAS). Accommodations will be approved, as appropriate,  based on receipt of documentation as outlined by ADSR.

Housing accommodation assignments are made on a case-by-case basis that recognizes the variability of individual needs and preferences and the fact that appropriate accommodations may be limited in number. As for all applicants for housing, no guarantee can be made that all stated preferences can be met. For full consideration, requests should be made at the start of any application period.

The OAS office is located at 110 Administration Building. The phone number is 404.727.9877 and the TDD is 404.712.2049. Additional consultation may take place with the Emory Counseling and Psychological Services and/or the Emory Student Health Center.

Students who are registered with OAS will be contacted individually via email regarding procedures for securing housing during the room selection process.


Comfort pet animals must be approved by OAS. The policy and supplemental housing application form can be found below.



Gender-Inclusive Housing

The Office of Residence Life and Housing Operations expanded its gender-inclusive housing opportunities to include all undergraduate students beginning the 2014-15 academic year. This new housing policy allows all undergraduate students who are eligible for housing to request a roommate and/or suitemate of any sex or gender. Like any roommate request, only matched roommate requests will be honored. Students participating in the gender-inclusive housing program will be assigned to a room in either suite-style housing or apartment-style housing. If a student does not request gender-inclusive housing, the student will be assigned a same-sex (as recorded with the university) roommate or roommates. This new policy helps create an environment that is inclusive of all students regardless of sex and gender. More information on the policy can be found click here.

You can also view the the press release, FAQs, and the official proposal for expanding gender inclusive housing. For more information, prospective or current students can contact one of the following staff members to discuss housing options available:

Married/Same-Sex Partners

Undergraduate Married students/Same-sex Partners (couples) are permitted to reside in student housing provided that at least one spouse per couple is a full-time student at Emory and the other spouse/partner is either a full or part-time student at Emory. Both members of the couple must submit a housing application.

Couples are eligible for apartment style housing only. A copy of a marriage certificate must be provided at the time of application or completion of the Emory University Statement of Same-Sex Domestic Partnership registration form. No additional housing priority is provided for couples requesting housing.
First- or second-year students who are couples may appeal to be released from the on campus requirement. Appeals to be released are not guaranteed.


Students with Dependents

Undergraduate housing at Emory University is designed with the purpose of housing enrolled students. Emory Housing is not able to accommodate family members, including minor children or other dependents.

First- or second-year students who have children or other dependents may appeal to be released from the on campus requirement.
